Anyway, North Korea wants us to say we're sorry about criticizing their recent missile test:
North Korea threatened Wednesday to conduct nuclear and missile tests unless the U.N. apologizes for criticizing its April 5 rocket launch, dramatically raising its stake in the worsening standoff over its atomic programs.
Pyongyang's Foreign Ministry said in a statement the country "will be compelled to take additional self-defensive measures" unless the U.N. Security Council apologizes immediately. "The measures will include nuclear tests and test-firings of intercontinental ballistic missiles."
White kind of junior high thinking goes on in Pyongyang? Actually, it's worse. It is a toddler tantrum. Apologize for saying mean things about our missile launch or we'll launch more and blow a nuke? Go ahead. Use up more fissile material. Every test is one less actual warhead you might have to use. If they can actually pull off a non-fizzle. And if they do, maybe the world will finally squeeze the nutjobs enough to die. So as I wrote before their first test, smoke 'em if you've got them.
It must be frustrating for the Pillsbury Nuke Boy. He endured the Bush administration for eight years and thought he'd relive the glory days of the 1994 Agreed Framework with a new Obama administration, and finds that President Obama hasn't whipped out the check book (for Kim, that is).
I'll give President Obama credit for not giving in to North Korea's tantrum. Let them hold their breath until they turn blue.
Oh, wait. About that apology? Fine. I'm sorry you're all a bunch of whiny, evil, bastards. Better?
Now run along and play in traffice, or something.
